YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a visually impaired mother of two, Florence Kpoblenu, gave a heart-rending narration about how she became blind and her subsequent struggle with stigma.
Before 1994, she had functioning eyes and was fully grown when she suddenly became blind completely after a severe headache.
Kpoblenu had no prior knowledge of how to manoeuvre her way as a visually impaired person but had to cater for her children singlehandedly. Her husband abandoned them after she became blind.
Speaking in an interview with YEN.com.gh, Kpoblenu disclosed that she was first misdiagnosed by a doctor after she became blind. ''I became sick in 1994 after a severe headache. I woke up one day feeling sick and by evening, I had become blind completely,'' she said.
